• Man gets prison time for sexploitation of a Brownsburg teen and others

    January 16, 2012 No comments

    A Maryland man charged with extorting a Brownsburg teen into sexual favors and victimizing other teens in several states pleaded guilty Friday and was sentenced to 33 years in prison.

    21 year old Trevor Shea of Mechanicsburg, Md., will also be on supervised release for the rest of his life after he serves his prison time, according U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett’s office.

    Hogsett’s office said Shea admitted to using blackmail to coerce 10 girls between the ages of 13 and 16 years old to produce images and videos of themselves engaging in sadistic and masochistic abuse and other sexually explicit conduct.

    Shea’s case began in September 2009, when police received a report that a 16-year-old girl from Brownsburg was being stalked over the Internet. The girl and two of her friends had visited a chatroom and flashed their breasts over a webcam. A week later, a stranger contacted the girl and said he had captured her image on the webcam and would post the pictures to her MySpace friends unless she posed for more explicit pictures and videos for him, the documents said.

    The girl complied for a while, but finally balked, and the stranger briefly took control of her MySpace page and threatened to expose her. Investigators traced the online threats to Shea and raided his Mechanicsburg, Md., home in March 2010, and eventually found videos of five more girls on Shea’s computer.

    While out on bond in connection with that case, Shea victimized four other girls in similar fashion . He was rearrested in December 2010 and has been in custody since then.

    Of the seven counts of production of child pornography that Shea plead guilty to Friday, four were in connection with the Brownsburg teen, and three were in connection with the other cases, one of which was in Florida.
